6ix9ine took to Instagram Live after releasing his single and accompanying video for “Gooba,” his first offering since being released from prison to home incarceration last month.

After dancing for his fans and even brandishing some handcuffs, 6ix9ine went in on everyone who's condemned him for snitching on his crew and breaking street code.

“Now let me break it down,” he said. “I’m sorry. I wanna say that I’m sorry to my fans because you know what? It wasn’t worth it. … If there is a street code, right, if there is a street code and there’s something so-called as loyalty and everything, and no snitching and all of that, I get it, right? But where was the loyalty when you was sleeping with my baby mother? Where was the loyalty when you was caught on the wire tap tryna kill me? Where was the loyalty when you tried to kidnap my mother? Where was the loyalty when you stole millions of dollars from me? Where was that? So who broke it first?”

“I get it,” he continued. “Don’t fight fire with fire—I’m sorry. But what did I do wrong? Be loyal to n***as that’s fucking my baby moms? Be loyal to n***as that kidnapped me, beat the shit out of me on video and everything? I’m supposed to be loyal to that? Nah, you know what it is? Y’all don’t wanna accept the fact that those is all true facts. Y’all understand why I snitched, y’all understand. Y’all don’t want to understand.”

6ix9ine went on to add, “I’m sorry to my fans because they don’t deserve—my family, my mother, my family don’t deserve that. And I’m sorry. But y’all not gonna break me down like if I did something wrong. Listen: I snitched, I ratted. But who was I supposed to be loyal to? If you can’t be loyal to me out here, in the free world? And you fucking my baby mom, while I’m out on tour making money for all of us, you back at home sleeping with my baby mom. Then I get kidnapped, then you try to kill me? If you can’t be loyal to me out here, in the free world, what makes you think if I would’ve held it down you wouldn’t violate me in prison? Stab me up, poke me up in my neck? I’m not gonna lose my life over no hater.”

Tekashi broke the world record of the most-viewed Instagram Live stream with over 2 million viewers.

6ix9ine also showed off his chains, which included a pendant of the shark Bruce from Finding Nemo, which he claimed is worth half a million. He pointed to the watches he was wearing, saying, “Ain't nobody got this watch. Well, I think like two people got it, but if you don't got this watch, we can't beef. Me and you are not in the same bracket at all.” He alleged the watch also cost half a million.

He also called himself a legend and king, a nod to his new Times Square billboard that announced the release of “Gooba.” “Y’all could never cooperate with the government and come back, y’all could never do that. I’m a living legend at the age of 24 years old ... Y'all not the kings of New York—look at the numbers.”

He added later, “If a rat came home and did more numbers than, I'd be mad. You have every reason to be mad.”

On Friday morning, before 6ix9ine went live, Meek Mill took to Twitter to say he hoped the controversial rapper would apologize to those he snitched on and to his family, whom he endangered when he ratted. While Tekashi did apologize to his family and fans, he had no remorse for the ones he outed.
